Women of NCDD: Lydia Clay-Jackson (Texas)

Lydia Clay-Jackson is the kind of lawyer we can all look up to as a role model.  In June, she will be sworn in as the president of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, making her only the 3rd woman to hold that position.

I was honored when Lydia asked me to serve as Chair of TCDLA's DWI Committee during her tenure.  2012-13 is poised to be a fantastic year for TCDLA with Lydia at the helm.

Lydia is a fellow NCDD member and a defense warrior in Conroe, Texas.

From her website:

Lydia Clay-Jackson is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Texas.  Prior to becoming a lawyer, Ms. Clay-Jackson was a juvenile counselor in Tarrant County, Juvenile Specialist for the Governor of Wisconsin, a parole officer in Harris County and a counselor in the Montana Post-Correction Re-Integration Program.   She brings this experience with her in defending her clients.  Lydia Clay-Jackson is also heavily involved in the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association. As dean of the Texas Criminal Trial College, she is responsible for the trial education of many Texas criminal defense lawyers.  She is a Fellow in the College of the State Bar.  She is certified to try capital murder cases throughout the state of Texas and regularly lectures on criminal law.   Her peers have elected her to the Criminal Justice Council of the State Bar. She is also a member of the National Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
